Activity/Tour


A team of the finest tour guides lead our historical holidays and sailing vacations. Our specialist tour leaders - archaeologists, historians and travel writers - are natural enthusiasts steeped in the history and culture of Turkey, Greece, and Italy.

Take a historical gulet cruise along Turkey's turquoise coast or through the Greek Islands, or around the coast of Italy, and enjoy total relaxation, beautiful food, and superb swimming - the perfect vacation. Or visit some of the finest archaeological sites in the world on our land tours, Exploring Rome, the magnificent island of Sicily, the Peloponnese region of Greece or retrace the route of Alexander the Great in Macedonia and Turkey.

In addition to our scheduled gulet holidays we specialise in expert-led gulet charters. You can choose a gulet trip just like one of our scheduled tours, with the opportunity to explore the ancient sites of Greece, Italy or Turkey. We create gulet charters to order - your own tailor-made cruise (including airport transfers, entrance fees, transport to sites, food etc. - virtually everything) in Turkey, Greece and Italy escorted by one of our expert guides and specialists. They will bring the region’s culture and history vividly to life and also ensure everything runs smoothly so you can relax and enjoy the experience completely.

Come with us and truly discover the beauty and history of Turkey, Greece and Italy.

Typical Day


Life on board
On most itineraries gulets cruise for an average of three hours a day, generally by motor to keep to schedule, under glorious sail when weather and time permits. While many gulets are designed solely as motor cruisers, all the gulets we use are proper sailing vessels. There are plenty of opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, and more active water sports, like windsurfing.

In the late afternoon we usually head ashore to explore one of the stunning ancient cities studding the coast.

Age range, type of group


Our typical age is very broad, from 30-75. We run a number of family trips where parents can bring children over 7 years of age.

Our archaeological tours in Turkey, Greece, and Italy are very much self selecting. The people who come on our trips are usually well travelled, enthusiastic, and curious about exploring new countries and cultures. They come from an incredibly wide range of professional backgrounds. Some have never been on an archaeological tour before, others have explored ancient sites all over the world.

On average about a quarter of the people on our trips are single travellers. About 40% of our guests come from the UK, 40% from the US, with the remaining 20% split between Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and beyond.

Sleeping and meals


We take food very seriously.

Along with the sites and itineraries, good food plays a key role in the design of our tours and cruises. For us, meals are much more than a practical necessity: they are a pleasure to be shared with our guests and moreover a central aspect in experiencing the local culture and the area's gastronomic wealth. In that sense, each of our itineraries is a culinary exploration.

On our gulet cruises, the on-board cooks freshly prepare a wonderful variety of dishes in the ship's galley using fine local ingredients. These daily delights are complemented by shore meals in excellent and atmospheric restaurants and tavernas along the itinerary.

On our land and city tours, you’ll enjoy meals at a range of carefully selected venues, usually our guides' personal favourites, based on in-depth local knowledge. They represent the full scope of the region's culinary achievements and specialities, ranging from authentic “home cooking” to truly gourmet food, always rooted in local tradition and based on the strengths of the area's produce.

There are countless delights you will taste on our tours: succulent fish, freshly grilled or barbecued, accompanied by a whole array of refreshing dips and salads; stuffed roast lamb prepared especially for us on a small Greek island; original pizza served in a tiny Neapolitan restaurant; fresh pomegranates, cherries or peaches just picked from the tree; subtly seasoned Turkish meatballs on a rooftop terrace overlooking Old Istanbul; delicate stuffed zucchini flowers in a Cretan mountain village; traditional Sicilian cheeses at a local dairy farm; organic olives and their aromatic oil; handmade Turkish baklava; the sweet baby tomatoes of Santorini or the whole range of handmade Italian pasta...

If gastronomy is a special interest of yours, you should join one of our designated culinary itineraries - but every one of our tours is a pleasure for all the senses!
